Newsletter – November 2019
WELL, THAT WAS NOVEMBER!!!
November was a wonderful month – I was in London, Spain and we moved into our new studio. It’s lovely to have my feet firmly planted on the ground in our new home as we near the end of the year, the end of the decade……
My trip to London was for the annual Design Leadership Network Summit. The DLN is an organization that I have been a member of for four years. I have met so many wonderful people here and the summit is a highlight in my conference calendar.
From private viewings of the crown jewels at The Tower of London to visiting the design studio and archives of GP&J Baker and having cocktails at Kensington Palace, each evening we were taken to some incredible places. During the day we heard from amazing speakers – Ilse Crawford being a personal highlight for me, as well as having a private tour of Veere Greeny’s beautiful London townhome. I am also keenly awaiting the release of Pauline Brown’s (past Chairman of North America at LVHM Moet Hennessy – Louis Vuitton) new book Aesthetic Intelligence. She was the first speaker on the podium and her talk set the tone and the message for the entire conference (in my humble opinion).
